    Official MPG for 2017 CX-9

    Just got confirmation from our local Mazda dealer in our location that the revised fuel consumption for the 2017 CX-9 (AWD versions) are: 11.5L/100K in city or 20MPG and 8.9L/100K hwy or 26MPG with combined MPG pretty much same as 2016. Not much difference though from 2017 vs 2016 though I've read in a lot of postings that current owners aren't experiencing the advertised MPG in real world driving.

    Yeah, not much more than 21 or 22 MPG most drives. Although I did see about 25MPG on a 40 minute highway drive last week.

    Arrow Official MPG for 2017 CX-9

    Actually the revised 2016 EPA ratings for CX-9 AWD have changed from 21/27/23 to 21/26/23 mpg city/highway/combined. For 2017 CX-9 AWD its EPA ratings are down-graded again to 20/26/23 mpg.

    I regularly see 25 mpg on long highway trips. Last week, Detroit to Chicago was 25 mpg, averaging ~73 mph. Winter gas, 5 passengers, 93 octane, loaded to the roof with stuff!
    I'm also on snow tires, X-Ice. Pretty flat drive, as well. No real hills.
    I'm happy with these numbers, for a 3 row SUV.

    We just returned from our Christmas Holiday trip to Nashville and back to Charleston, SC in our 2016 CX-9 GT AWD with 3000 miles on it. Its getting the same mileage as our 2013 GT FWD on the same trip. In the 1300 miles we drove, we got 22 mpg on 95% interstate driving. My wife gets about 18 - 19 mpg around town driving. Our 2013 CX-9 GT FWD got the exact same mileage. Our 2007 CX-9 GT FWD used to get 18 -19 mpg around town and 25 - 26 mpg on the highway. That car had the 3.5 ltr V6. I want that same engine back in the CX-9. I don't know why in the world they replaced it with the 3.7 ltr. V6 as performance is imperceptible but mileage was a lot worse. I think Mazda's Skyactive technology has gone too far with its weight loss. I've noticed the door panels flex more than the older CX-9. I traded in my daughter's CX-5 in for a VW Tiguan because it was built so flimsy. It was recalled for excessive hood flex and door mirrors that vibrated too much because of the lightweight steel in the door panels. It did not make me feel safe putting my daughter in that car. The plastic bumpers flexed so much the reflectors would fall off of them.

    I am not getting from my 2016GT AWD much higher mileage than my previous 2011 GT FWD driving them similarly/

    still... I am enjoying it

    Right now we are getting consistent 23.5 MPG on our typical highway romps( Signature AWD). We are in a very hilly area so I see that as a great number for winter driving in MA. Winter formulated gas is a 10% hit on all vehicles and when the temp drops below about 45 you take another 5% hit. During the late summer(when we bought it) and early fall we would easily hit the 26 mpg mark and I've gotten 27 mpg on the highway as well. I'd say we are definitely within 1 mpg of the stated mileage.

    Running the car with the heated seats on seems to reduce the mileage from 27 mpg to 23 mpg. Anybody else experience this?

    Um, that is most likely related to the cold, not the heated seats.

    Yeah, heated seats are a function of the battery, not the engine.
